During the pre-screening process our CareForce team:
Verifies profile information for accuracy

Conducts an online media search for negative, newsworthy incidents
Performs an overall reputation check by reading a sample of online reviews
Please note that the CareForce pre-screening results do not reflect a care provider's licensing status. Learn more about licensing information for child care centers and in-home day cares
Information reviewed during the pre-screening process can change at any time. Accordingly, please make sure you perform your own research on the care providers you are considering and feel completely comfortable with the company or individual you have selected. Ultimately, you are solely responsible for selecting an appropriate care provider for you and your family.
My two kids have been at the Playground for a year and a half, and are now 5 and 3. They are both very happy there, and love going to "school". They are fond of their teachers, and it is a well-run, organized place. The only two reasons I'm not giving 5 stars is that 1) there was a lot of provider turnover when we got there. That has since stabilized, at least in my kids rooms. 2) It's an all-play environment. They do some pre-reading and pre-math, and they certainly do LOTS of interesting projects and units... but the place we moved from had the kids doing much more reading and math stuff. That said, a play-based environment is legitimate at these ages, and my kids are thriving in it, and what more could I ask for?
